    • “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination, full of hope.” (Maya Angelou)

      True love knows no reason, no boundaries, no distance. It knows not right or wrong, nor is it simply black or white. Made in Heaven is unapologetic for its portrayal of love. Of loving the only way the heart knows. At its core, it is a twisted and double love triangle – between a man (Son), his unrequited lover (Hung), and his lover (Diem Tinh) and her lover (a lonely taxi driver). It paints love with all the colors of human love, of excruciating love; each tender stroke of loving fully, completely and most importantly, loving naturally.

      Son and Hung are best friends, best buddies - two artists who share a passion but at a crossroads. Each stroke of their paintbrush tells a different story, leads them in an opposite direction, drawing them further apart. While Hung basks in fame and success, his paintings collected by the wealthy and elite, Son’s turn of fortune leaves him isolated and alone, barely scraping by. His paintings are mere dust collectors, they sit untouched, unloved, like their creator.

      Diem Tinh, a fashion designer, is gifted with great beauty and an aura that men find hard to resist. So much so that Hung falls for Diem Tinh from the very first moment he sets eyes on her. Their love is fast and furious and a romantic wedding soon takes place after that chance first encounter.

      While Hung and Diem Tinh fall madly, deeply in love, Son is left on the sidelines – leaving him further spiraling down the deep, dark hole he digs for himself. His loves turns sour, it turns angry, it is enraged. The fires of envy, further fueled by Hung and Diem Tinh’s new-found happiness. Son’s scorn knows no boundaries, no distance. It knows not right or wrong, nor is it simply black or white.

      No matter the cost, Son vows to tear Hung and Diem Tinh apart. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned is taken to a new level in Son’s dark and twisted, lonely world.

      Rejected and betrayed by love, a love unrequited, Son finds himself completely broken, like the odd puzzle of his framed dusty paintings, that hangs lonely in his broken down, both physically and emotionally, family home. And it is in that moment of despair, in the final moments of his self-hatred that Son finds her true self. She comes to terms with her own fate, her own true being, having been trapped in a man’s physical body for so long. Son picks up the pieces of her life, rebuilds herself and comes back stronger than ever. For true love knows no reason, no boundaries, no distance. And learning to love yourself, whoever you are, is the greatest love of all, because true love, the love you have for yourself is Made in Heaven.
